I've stopped marking fragile packages, they seem to get beat up worse than others.  All I do is LOTS of bubblewrap and packing peanuts.  If it just fits in the box, then there's greater risk of crush-damage.  If you have some space then it's like a little buffer zone.

ok, I'm back from limbo- been incredibly busy lately!
I received today, around lunchtime!! Supermedic was insane, she sent me sooooooooo much stuff!!! Here's a list of what she spoilt me with: http://pics.livejournal.com/kitkabbit/pic/000a6bqb/s640x480
http://pics.livejournal.com/kitkabbit/pic/000a8e3t
a fabulous set of garden apron and garden tote (with 12 pockets in the tote in total for every tool I could possibly use!!), adorable woodburned plaques, one has a garden gnome, YAY!!! and the other is a Welcome to my Garden sign with a  really cute kitten gardener!!  She also sent me a froggie planter (which sadly got broken during the journey but I'm going to try to fix it) and crocheted me a plant hanger too!  I also got plants (daisies, iris, tomato, and spurge) PLUS 3 packets of sweet pea seeds!

Thank you so much, Michelle!!  I just hope that you will be as happy with your incoming package as I am right now!  I ripped that package open as soon as I could get to the scissors, haha!!!  Lucky me... heehee... I have a gnome, a gnome, a gnome, I think I love him....

also here is what I sent Supermedic:
a totebag with matching pin, 2 windchimes, one was vintage silverplate and the other salvaged from a crystal martini glass, i used copper foil tape to decorate it, birdhouse ornament, watering can ornament, damask rosepetal potpourri, red camellia pincushion, earrings, and plants.


PS:
bending that fork was really tough on my fingers even with gloves and pliers!  and the DH helped with drilling the holes, yay!
